You may have noticed by now that we love to make peonies! The last one I crafted was a crepe paper coral supreme peony for our February Member Make challenge. We wanted to try out a felt version of this pretty pink flower, so we turned to our felt flower expert, Krista. She crafted these beautiful felt coral charm peony flowers and buds for us, complete with felt greenery. And today we’re sharing the tutorial with you so you can learn how to craft them on your own!
This felt coral charm peony is an intermediate DIY craft project. So if you’re a beginner, you might want to try this frosted paper peony flower, which includes a video tutorial. Or you could also make these pretty crepe paper peonies.
Whichever flowers you decide to make, we want to see them! You can share progress pictures or completed projects on our Facebook page for members. This is a great way to get tips and encouragement from us and other crafters. Or you can also use #MadeWithLia when you share pictures on your own Facebook or Instagram.
If you need any help with the PanPastel part, make sure to watch our video on how to color paper flowers. You can also ask us questions in the comment section below. Happy crafting! ~Lia and team
